Pop music superstar, husband of Kim Kardashian and the world’s most famous President Donald Trump supporter, Kanye West is angry.
And he is angry at the liberals who he says are bullying everyone in the United States that disagrees with them and their politics.
West, who has said that he himself has been bullied, made the statement during an appearance on an episode of David Letterman’s Netflix show which airs Friday May 31, Variety reported.
The Daily Beats called the episode “not only one of the best interviews Letterman has ever conducted, it’s also one of the most coherent and engaging interviews Kanye has ever given, even if it does go off the rails at times.”
It is surprising as The Daily Beast is a liberal leaning website, which means they likely did not approve of his statements about President Trump.
“This is like my thing with Trump — we don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” he says, claiming that his donning a “Make America Great Again” hat is “not about politics” but rather an attempt to break the stigma around showing support for Trump.
Letterman brings up the Republican-led voter suppression efforts during the recent midterm elections. “So if I see a person that I admire talking about Donald Trump can think whatever he does,” Letterman says, “I wonder if those thoughts, indirectly, aren’t hurting people who are already being hurt.”
Instead, West replies that Trump voters are “treated like enemies of America because that’s what they felt.” After Letterman makes a case that Trump actually is not helping those who vote for him, West says, “Have you ever been beat up in your high school for wearing the wrong hat?”
Asked who the real bullies in America are at the moment, he replies, “Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters!”
